SteamWorld Heist is a mixture of turn-based strategy and action shooter genre, the continuation of the SteamWorld series, playing as the Captain Piper Faraday who recruits and leads a crew of robots met during the adventure to pillage and shoot over and under through spaceships. Collecting swags and strategically planning every move to eliminate all enemies. Every character has a unit set of weapon and skills that can be improved as each robot level-up.

Collecting loots and keeping everyone alive until the end is the key to maximize options in the succeeding stages. We don't want anyone in our crew left behind and be useless for the next stages specially if we want kill ourselves, like me, who set the difficulty level to Elite.

SteamWorld Heist is a fantastic game for turn-based fans out there, with great characters and gameplay that will keep your thinking of strategies to finish every map as perfectly as possible.
